  1. Also not a bad haul considering his team sucked in general, which probably held down his total, and hey let's be honest, despite not having the best numbers, if they had a better option they wouldn't have played him 32 times. That being said I agree with JamboAl that it's unlikely he's get another SPL shot. I would love to see him come home to the CanPL.
  2. Yeah some German dude named Fritz tweeted it with a soccer ball emoji and no link... must be legit. 😜
  3. Likely D2 Europe. He's still at a good enough level to attract teams that CanPL can't compete with financially and not exactly the kind of guy I see taking a pay cut for a cause.
  4. Yeah kinda like showing up on the last day of pre-season and finding your name at the bottom of the inter-squad game sheet written in pencil. IMO should have been a few CanPL players on the 40 man roster. Carducci is top of that list. If the Impact did complain about loosing Shome, and that's the reason he's not on the list, then they better damn well play him during the GC. Or alternatively, maybe they cut a deal so he could be made available for the U23s... unlikely, but I can hope right.
  5. IMO MLS isolates itself from the global transfer market (i.e. neither a developing/selling league or a buying league either) because of it's salary cap and aspects related to it's single market structure. The salary cap and limited roster spots favours the signing of low cost journeymen over young players who may earn a transfer fee in the future, but who are less likely to contribute to team success in the short term. Moreover, the fact that the league takes a healthy cut of any transfer fee is a huge disincentive for clubs to focus on transfers as a part of their business model. Realistically, at this point we don't know that much about the CanPL's business structure. We don't know if the league will take any cut of transfer revenues, but we do know there's a salary cap, which again may disincentivize using roster spots for and giving game time to "project players". This latter issues however may be addressed by the stipulation that each club needs to give a certain amount of minutes to U21 players per season.
  6. My translation: According to him, the Peps stadium would be perfect for this type of project. Sounds like he's just saying it would be a great place. (i.e. in theory)
  7. So no one has actually got an official answer to the question of what does a "one season" subscription mean? I've asked OneSoccer, via the "contact" page, and will post if I get a reply, but just wondering if anyone else knows the answer.
  8. Likely. JH is on record staying he'll use Davies at LB if he thinks the opposition is going to bunker.
  9. Does anyone know if OneSoccer or CBC will be archiving games? I work a lot of evenings and weekends, and would be nice to still catch the games.
  10. I like that that they’ve done away with the embarrassing roster changes after the group stage rule. I like the draw as we’re garaunteed a game against Mexico and likely to get a game against Costa Rica. This will provide a good measuring stick for progress. Between the GC and Nations League our guys will get a run out against all three top teams. If we do well it’ll instill confidence in the new tactics and mental approach, if we get our asses handed to us, we’ll know that for all the talk not much has actually changed, and if we somehow manage to loose to Cuba/Martinique we all gotta start asking some serious questions.
  11. Reminds me more of Patrice Bernier. The ? is one of a kind. ?
